…And great earth quakes shall be in diverse places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. (Luke 21:11).
… And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;(Luke 21:25)
… Men’ shearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken; (Luke 21:26)
… This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. (2 Timothy 3:1)
Jesus is giving a series of prophecies about what to look for as the age of grace comes to a close. These verses are several of many such prophecies from throughout the Bible. 2017 was the worst year in recorded history for the intensity, frequency, severity, duration and occurrence of a large number of severe natural disasters worldwide. Earthquakes, volcanoes,hurricanes, typhoons, cyclones, torrential flooding, unprecedented wildfires in unusual places, devastating droughts, excessive/scorching heat setting records everywhere, record snowfalls in Europe and Russia. Snow in the Arabia. This list can go on. Most studied Eschatologists believe these ‘fearful sights’ and massive natural disasters are all part of the ‘CONVERGENCE’ of signs that this Biblical and prophetic age is closing. Most people who study prophecy are familiar with the routine reference(s) made that these things will be like a woman having labor pains that occur in greater severity, frequency, size and duration priort o giving birth. End of note.
Significant increase in ash emissions at Veniaminof, Aviation Color Code Red, Alaska
Postedby TW on November22, 2018. Watchers.news
Ash emissions at Veniaminof volcano increased significantly on November 21, 2018,forcing Alaska Volcano Observatory to raise the Aviation Color Code to Red and Volcano Alert Level to Warning.
Veniaminof is generating a plume of ash up to 4.6 km (15 000 feet) above sea level,extending for more than 240 km (150 miles) to the SE, AVO said 19:15 UTC,November 21. “This morning observers in Perryville and webcam views indicated continuous ash emissions. This activity is a significant increase from the past month and AVO is raising the Aviation Color Code to Red and the Volcano Alert Level to Warning.” Seismic activity has remained elevated in the past 24 hours, and ramped up around 08:00 UTC before falling slightly throughout the day today, the observatory said 23:40 UTC. By 11:43 UTC(02:43 AKST), an ash plume was observed in satellite data extending 130 km (80 miles) to the SE, with maximum height estimated at 3.9 km (13 000 feet) asl.
This plume continued to develop throughout the night extending to over 240 km (150 miles).
In response, the national weather service issued a SIGMET. Clear webcam views in the morning indicated continued ash emission to the SE, and a second plume developed extending over 193 km (120 miles) to the SE. A pilot report from the morning indicated that the ash cloud was below 3 km (10 000 feet). Ash 3d forecasts suggest a possible shift to northerly winds overnight tonight that may result in ash impacts on the community of Perryville, and the National Weather Service has issued an advisory for trace to minor ash fall.
No satellite observations of thermal anomalies associated with the continued lava flow were observed in the last 24 hours, but such signatures could be obscured by increased ash emissions and/or cloud cover. “Nearly continuous ash emissions continued for much of today with a plume below 15 000 feet asl extending over 400 km (250 miles) to the southeast until around 23:45 UTC(14:45 AKST),” AVO reported 06:08 UTC, November 22.
After that, a short eruptive pulse was visible from the Perryville webcam at 00:26 UTC,November 22 (15:26 AKST, November 21) but largely dissipated by 02:26 UTC(17:26 AKST). No ash emissions were visible in the last daylight webcam images,and satellite images do not indicate continued ash emissions at this time. Veniaminof volcano is monitored with a local real-time seismic network, which will typically allow AVO to detect changes in unrest that may lead to a more significant explosive eruption. Rapid detection of such an event would be accomplished using a combination of seismic, infrasound, lightning, and satellite data.
